Iran Strike Could Rely on US Missiles, Bombers, Analysts Say‎

Reports of an assassination attempt on the Iranian president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, were denied by the Tehran regime today, which said the confusion stemmed from a firecracker being mistakenly described as a "grenade".

The Iranian website said a homemade grenade exploded near Ahmadinejad's presidential motorcade in Hamedan, western Iran, as he was on his way to address a crowd.

But the official Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) reported that a local youth had thrown a firecracker as "a sign of joy" and blamed the use of the words "homemade grenade" for the confusion.

It quoted the governor of Hamedan saying: "No one has been injured and no damage has been made."
However, Mehr news agency said that a number of people had been arrested at the scene.
